Slip and fall accidents are very common and serve as the highest claim amount for premises liability lawsuits. A premises liability involves the responsibility of owners and occupiers of property for accident injuries on their property resulting in injures to the victim.

How Much Is My Accident Case Worth?
How Do We Know Who Is Responsible For The Damages?
Normally, the property owner is responsible for those hurt of their property if the area is unkept or damage in anyway that results in a trip or slip and fall. There are a few questions that can help determine if the property owner is at fault for the injury a victim suffers such as:
- Did the property owner use common sense in keeping the area clean or blocked if the area was damaged?
- Did the property owner acknowledge there was imminent danger in the location such as unlevel pavement or slippery floors and neglected to block the area from traffic?
If the property owner is careful and reasonable they will keep their area as safe and clean as possible. The idea is to show the property owner practiced ” reasonable care”. An owner can’t be at every spot in the store at once, but are there records that show a new slippery floor just happened as opposed to the floor being wet all day and was neglected which led to an injury. Upon the owner being asked questions to determine if he or she is liable, many questions will be asked of the victim as well such as:
- Did you trip or slip over an uneven surface such as a carpet or wet area?
- If the area was dangerous should the owner have known in the time you fell, or did the dangerous surface recently occur without the owner’s knowledge.
- Has an accident happened at that spot or store before?
- Did the owner practice a regular cleaning routine which is charted?
- Did you slip or trip over an object that someone left or placed on the ground? Was it intended to be there such as a sign or chair?
- Could a barrier have prevented the accident?
- Did poor lighting contribute to the accident?
- Was the victim in the spot unlawfully when the accident happened?
- Did the victim use “common sense” when walking in the area or did the victim aimlessly hurt them self on accident?
In order for the property owner to be liable one of the following must hold true:
- The owner or employee must have caused a spill or dangerous condition in which the victim was affected
- The owner or employee must have been aware of the dangerous condition and failed to fix the problem
- The owner or employee must have known a dangerous condition was present
